Forever Blossoms for Retro Rubber 164

Welcome to a new challenge at Retro Rubber Challenge. This time, it's Anything Goes, which is almost true! Because it's RETRO rubber, of course you still need to use stamps that are a year or more old and give us an approximate age for them. 

Forever Blossoms is a set that came out in the Occasions catalogue, January 2020. It's really a romantic occasions set, with some suitably romantic sentiments. While I was thinking of this as an Anniversary card, there are plenty of other times you might want to remind someone of how much they mean to you. 

I started by stamping the large spray of flowers twice and colouring them with Stampin' Blends. Then I  cut some flowers out of the second spray so I could layer them up on the final card. 

I sponged some Pool Party onto the card front using a Blending Brush. The sponged area grounds the flowers while suggesting a hint of sky behind them.

For the Flirty Flamingo base, I stamped the flower spray stamp over it in Flirty Flamiingo ink. Then I set the white panel into one corner, rather than centrally, so that the pattern could be seen.
